Saxo Bank allows a percentage of the investment in certain ETFs to be used as collateral for margin trading activities.
The collateral value of a ETF depends on the rating of the individual ETF – please see conversion table below.
|Collateral value of ETF position||n/a||75%||75%||50%||50%||0%||0%||0%|
Example: 75% of the value of a position in a ETF with Rating 3 can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs, Futures and Options.
Please note that Saxo Bank reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of ETF investment as collateral for large position sizes, or stock portfolios considered to be of very high risk.
